It is not easy to find the actual lists of approved, prohibited, and native (therefore automatically approved) aquatic plants. On my brief scan of the lists, the species prohibited that really jumped out are Cryptocoryne beckettii, C. wendtii, and Hydrocotyle leucocephala. Ouch!
While I am not an expert on aquatic plants, I do have a lot of familiarity with invasive exotic terrestrial plants. These are truly the bane of all my restoration projects! While none of us want to be told to destroy our favorite aquarium plants, in some cases these pose a real danger to native freshwater ecosystems. Let our replies be balanced.
